WorldJules Manson, a Tea Party member and failed political candidate, called for the assassination of President Obama during a rant on his Facebook page earlier this week. And he didn’t stop there. Manson, who referred to the president as a f***ing [N-word], also said that Obama’s “monkey children” should be assassinated, too, the New York Daily News reports.
So, what led him to make such outrageous statements? According to Manson, Obama supported a military authorization bill last week that he considers treasonous and an erosion of constitutional protections.
When his post didn’t get the supportive responses he’d hoped for, he tried to defend the statements but eventually removed the post, but not before YourBlackWorld captured a screen image of it.
It’s not the first time he’s verbally attacked the president. The Daily News reports that Manson, who considers Republican presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul to be his God, used a photo of Obama dressed as Adolf Hitler in an announcement to declare his candidacy for a city council seat in Carson, California, in February, that also called for racial equality.
"As soon as we shed our ideological labels, conditioned beliefs and see the humanity beyond our pigments we find that in full frontal view of the naked truth we are all united in the same mission of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness," Manson said in the announcement.
